1. Restless leg syndrome manifested by iron deficiency from chronic hemoptysis in cystic fibrosis.
Match Strength: 8.863
Restless leg syndrome (RLS) and periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD) are considered to be a continuum of a neurological sleep disorder associated with abnormal iron metabolism or deficiency. I describe a case of RLS and PLMD in a cystic fibrosis patient with iron deficiency from chronic hemoptysis. This is the first case that reports RLS and PLMD manifesting from iron deficiency caused by chronic hemoptysis in advanced cystic fibrosis lung disease ... Read More »

2. Analysis of surgical treatment for pulmonary aspergilloma.
Match Strength: 8.066
Surgery for pulmonary aspergilloma is reputed to be risky. The results of surgical treatment of pulmonary aspergilloma in 41 patients between 1988 and 2003 were evaluated retrospectively. Hemoptysis occurred in 31 patients (75.6%) and it was massive (> 300 mL in 24 hr) in 3. The underlying lung disease was tuberculosis in 35, bullous lung disease in 2, hydatid cyst in 2, and lung carcinoma in 2 patients. Lobectomy, bilobectomy, wedge resection, and pneumonectomy were performed in 27, 4, 6, and 4 patients respectively. The postoperative complication rate was 24.4%. One patient, who had a ...

3. Role and outcome of surgery for pulmonary tuberculosis.
Match Strength: 3.760
The need and outcome of surgical intervention in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis were assessed retrospectively. Between 1993 and 2003, 72 major surgical procedures were performed in 57 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. There were 44 males and 13 females with a mean age of 34 years. Indications for surgery were: trapped lung in 18 (31.6%), multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in 10 (17.5%), aspergilloma in 10 (17.5%), destroyed lung in 5 (8.8%), massive hemoptysis in 4 (7%), bronchopleural fistula in 3 (5.3%), persistent cavity in 2 (3.5%), and undiagnosed nodule in 5 (8.8%) patients. The ... Read More »

4. Percutaneous radiofrequency thermal ablation of primary and metastatic lung tumors.
Match Strength: 3.196
OBJECTIVE: Primary lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer. For patients with inoperable lung cancer, percutaneous radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFA) under CT-guidance represents a minimally invasive treatment. It can also be applied in combination with radiation therapy and chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a period of 18 months, RFA under CT-guidance 27 ablations were applied on 22 patients, 14 patients with primary lung cancer and 8 patients with metastatic lung tumor. There were 15 men and 7 women ranging in age between 48 and 79 years. All patients were not surgical ... Read More »
